An actual innocence hearing was heard on 4-15-2008 in which I, Pedro Solis Sosa, was wrongly denied relief based on manufactured State’s confession; with my attorneys failing to defend me during hearings when I was being attacked by district attorney, with a hoax. I was stopped by my attorneys from defending myself at actual innocence hearing of 4-15-2008. I have plenty of unquestionable Brady material evidence to prove my innocence but attorney’s only interest is to prove me mentally retarded.
I now need funds to hire investigators (2) record alteration examiner and handwriting expert examiner for (3) counts of forgery in record, and (4) attorneys. Record is badly altered and false. To start with it contains 8 different contradicting testimonies of same cop giving it of manufactured State’s confession for which I was wrongly tried with and denied relief in Habeas, actual innocence hearing of 4-15-2008.
Since I, Pedro, have no family or true friends who care to help financially or do anything, besides my 87 year old precious mother, and a very poor and divorced and uneducated sister who helps, limited with what she can do. I also have a mentally retarded young brother who helps me monthly with $25.00 of his mental-retarded check. So please send donations to me.
Please make checks or money orders payable to Inmate Trust Fund for Pedro S. Sosa 000778.
For more or fuller information on donations or about case or anything the interested person who wishes to know, be it legal or personal, I promise to answer 100% truthful, with evidence to back up my plea for help. Donations, small or big, will be greatly appreciated.
This is a matter of life or death, or maybe a matter of spending the rest of my innocent life in prison for the death of a policeman I did not kill, nor robbed anyone. I was at work, 100 miles from the crime.
FACTS OF ARREST SCENE
On 2, 4 & 5, 1984 I, Pedro Solis and ex-wife were stopped by 18 Federal Agents and other law men, all only English language speaking who were told I couldn’t speak, read or write in English at all.
At arrest scene she was handcuffed from behind, lowered face down on side of highway, 1 Federal Agent and 1 City Cop both point each a loaded shotgun each to back of her head. 15-20 minutes later an Hispanic Federal Agent arrived, handcuffed me, pointed to her on ground with 2 shotguns to back of her head and was told by Hispanic Agent, “Look what you got your wife into, Pete! Now if you don’t tell us you robbed the La Vernia State Bank and promise to sign what we need you to sign, 1 of the 2 with the shotguns to your wife’s head is accidentally going to slip and kill her”.
We adored each other. My first thought when seeing her life in danger were of our marriage vows, “To love, honor, cherish and protect till death do you part”. I gave up my innocent life to protect my beloved innocent wife’s life and did as ordered by Hispanic federal agent A.
At the federal’s investigation room, agent A., manufactured a handwritten confession. Once manufactured handwritten confession was done, Hispanic federal agent called other 4 lawmen back inside interview room and read confession to them. He tried to force me to sign in front of other lawmen. I refused to and asked to call my brother to get me a lawyer before signing anything for agent A. and others. Agent A. got angry then asked once again other 4 lawmen to leave. Agent A. and I were alone once more for a few minutes stating, “I know how to get him to sign”. County Sheriff and DA’s investigator left interview room but federal agent C. and Ranger C. refused to leave room. Instead, federal agent C. made threats of killing my wife for trying to escape and sentencing my 17 year old nephew to death for the murder of the deputy sheriff who was murdered after robbery. Ranger C. also threatened to kill my wife for trying to escape and put my wife’s and my 2 baby sons in an orphan’s home. I confronted both agent C. and Ranger C., arguing, “If you kill my wife and claim in false she tried to escape, you’ll have to prove she tried to escape”! Ranger C. walked to me, sitting on a chair, handcuffed in front and told me, as Range C. grabbed his Ranger’s badge and stated as he bent over my face, “You see this, you son of a b? We’re no liars, what we say people believe”!
After these life threats agent A. asked agent C. and Ranger C. to please leave us alone, stating, “I have my own way to force him to sign the handwritten confessions” (which agent A. fabricated). Both lawmen went out of room. Agent A. then walked to interview room’s door, opened it and had my wife called out to flash her to me again. I was then ordered to sign confession or she would die trying to escape. By flashing my wife to me, letting me know she was their hostage until I entered a guilty plea on bank robbery in Federal Court on 2-6-1984. I signed to honor my marriage vows and protect my wife’s life.
At 1:15 am, Sunday morning on 2-5-1984, a young, red haired federal agent knocked on the door of interview room and announced Federal Secretary had arrived. I was then told by agent A. not to say anything before Secretary of threats or my wife would for sure die!
Federal Secretary typed as agent A. read to her his handwritten, manufactured confession. She typed what was read on her letter size typing paper, 8” X 11”. When Secretary finished typing it was handed to agent A. who then read it to me, then had me sign. Witnesses of my signature on typed confession were #1 agent A., #2, Ranger C., #3 Federal Secretary. No one else was there, that was why agent A. asked her if she’d mind signing. She did sign. I saw her with my own eyes. I was sitting beside her, just 2 feet from each other as she typed and signed as a witness.
This type confession was federal style, no Miranda warnings on face. As my trial attorney is still objecting to admission of federal style type confession with no Miranda warnings on face (T-P.3276.Vol.9)
On 2-6-1984, in Federal court, after guilty plea, I was sentenced to life in federal prison. Then federal judge dismissed life sentence and set me free of all federal charges. After judge sets me free he also told me that he had to turn me over to State authorities as I would be tried for capital murder in State criminal court.
In State district court, on pre-trial hearing of around March or May, my court appointed attorney, who was denied all funds for experts and investigator and co-counsel, except for $500 for investigation, DA presented federal style, typed up confession. Attorney objected to its admission as it was in violation of Texas Penal Code Art.38.22 Section 2. It did not contain Miranda warnings on its face, as required by State law in Art.38.22 Section 2.
At that time federal style confession became worthless in State’s criminal procedure but biased trial judge overruled objection and illegally admitted federal confession.
No problem at all! It’s extremely important for readers and interested persons for this web page to be continued!!!!
Biased trial judge left it to the DA, Texas Ranger on my case, the San Antonio Police Department and the San Antonio, Texas Feds to manufacture a State’s Confession and alter trial record out of my presence by rewriting and altering federal style confession into a blank state form confession, form # Ra-31-67 and either forming my name to manufactured State’s confession or allowing Texas Ranger to bring in one of their police informants with a fixed and false identification card and had informant presented in front of S. A. Policeman Notary Cop. Please remember that Department of Public Safety are the ones that make our driver’s licenses and any identification cards needed! As said, “No problem at all, they have it all at hand”!!! State’s confession has never been in front of me, ever!
At my illegal trial of November 1984, with State’s manufactured confession now with its Miranda warnings on its face (as required by State Law on Art. 1 Section 38.22 Sect.2) was brought in through back doors of Attascosa County Courthouse and slipped into the box of evidence presented to jury for its deliberation, but never presenting it to my trial defense attorney as he was still objecting before trial jury of 11-1984. See (Tr.Pg.3276;.,Vol., 9).
See also (Tr.Pg.3368;.,Vol., 9), Texas Ranger on witness stand before trial jury, identifying Federal Style confession with no Miranda warnings on its face.
My trial attorney was denied Appointment of Co-Counsel 3 times during preparations for trial and during the incompetence trial and for trial itself. A Capital Murder Trial by biased judge who wanted me dead; see biased judge’s 50 year old friend, ex-parte juror on my trial who voted to convict and for death sentence before he got on jury box because biased judged asked him to lie his way onto jury panel so he could help biased judge send me to death row! See juror’s affidavit stating so.
Then, after convicted and sentenced to death on 11-26-1984, biased judge orders an attorneys’ payment hearing in which biased judge then appoints two co-counselors to help prepared for trial on December 28, 1984, 30 days after illegal conviction and sentence of death; paying 1 attorney $2,800 and second co-counsel $3,400 and trial attorney $8.700.
What are co-counsels needed for now, after trial is over???
After illegal conviction and death sentence trial record was altered, which strips me of my Constitutional Rights to a full panoply of appeals, my appeals attorneys are more interested in protecting the 4 conspiring, corrupted police departments that manufactured the evidence and forged my name to 3 different State/Federal documents.
My trial jury was used and lied to, by prosecution attorney, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Department on 3 counts, the Feds from San Antonio, Texas and Texas Ranger from San Antonio, Texas. The State knowingly, intentionally and well aware of its prosecution misconduct presented manufactured evidence to the trial jury. Yes, I have the indisputable trial record evidence to prove, but no attorney.
